Day school may be the solution to address the needs of your adolescent. Be it substance abuse, a mental health issue or an eating disorder, day school provides adolescents with the education they need to succeed in addition to the clinical support they need in order to succeed.
What is day school?
Day school is an alternate method of education for adolescents who are not able to find success in a traditional school setting. Unlike a residential treatment program, students in day school are able to return home at the end of their school day. This allows adolescents to maintain their family and community relationships while receiving ongoing support.
